Looks like more sellers

The Pirates have now placed themselves in the thick of the wildcard race. The Lineup seems to have become pretty stable with the additions of Polanco and Davis. Unless the bucs decide to make a...

How to make the Bucs a contender

The Pirates have a huge hole in their rotation and Tallion is not coming to save the day. We can sit here all day and discuss if we had Burnett and then Tallion came up with Polanco how we might...

MLB got it wrong when dealing with Dempster and Arod.

Ryan Dempster threw at Arod 4 times and finally got him in the elbow and back. Many people, including myself, applaud him and wonder why he is only the second person since Arod has been back to...

Biogenesis makes trade market even worse.

The Pirates already find themselves trying to address needs in a sellers market. Adding a SP has become almost an afterthought. Garza was a major overypay. Apparently they are looking for more...

This is going to be all over the place, but just curious as to what everyone thinks. I figure about 30 of the current top 100 depending on the list will graduate. Tallion should be a top...

Tony Watson being misused

I know I have stated this before and many others as well. Tony Watson is not being used properly. I know Hurdle wants everyone to think that he is not a lefty specialist, and will even point to...

Autograph advice

So my son was born 6 months ago and I came up with the bright idea of every year having the two MVP's sign the same ball. So in 10 years he has a ball with all the MVP's signature for the last 10...

Altoona fun to watch.

After going to the last two Curve games, I have to disagree with the preview to the season saying Altoona is the least interesting. The main reason I wanted to go was obviously to see Tallion...

Keep saying it doesn't matter.... some of it does

Sure it's spring ball and it doesn't matter who wins or loses. It is all about getting the guys ready for the majors. You can't get overly excited at a guy like Marte last year ripping the ball. ...

MLB Network talks Justin Upton to Pirates trade.

Before you get excited about the prospect of having Upton, the trade was pretty crazy and not well thought out. One of the hosts said Upton should go to the Rangers for Cruz and Mike Olt. The...

Baseball economics for those who just don't understand.
